MetLife secures UniSuper insurance tender 

MetLife has won a contract to provide life insurance to UniSuper fund members from June 1.

The partnership will provide fund members with enhancements to their insurance, including the modernisation of default levels of cover at different life stages, more equitable premiums and improved terms and conditions, the two businesses say.

“We are thrilled to be UniSuper’s insurance partner. The strength of our digital offering, customer-focused approach and values alignment means we are able to deliver what really matters to its members,” MetLife Australia CEO Richard Nunn said.

UniSuper members will receive a tailored notice detailing how the changes affect them. The fund has been working to ensure a smooth transition from TAL insurance to MetLife.

“We have a duty to ensure our members have the best protection for them and their families,” UniSuper CEO Peter Chun said. “The transition to MetLife allows us to better support our members during some of life’s most challenging moments.”
